  • 8.0.Very good

    Tipical backpacker's hostel, loved by surfers.

    Tipical backpacker's hostel, with a special blink to surfers. Casual service (some times too casual). Regular confort levels for this kind of hostel. Expect the occasional party noise, or noisy neighbour. Access to kitchen and to some home organic products. Great location.
